Applications of Tungsten Carbide Coatings
Tungsten Carbide coatings typically solve industrial challenges such as wear, abrasion, and erosion. For example, the tungsten carbide family of coatings can be applied to exhaust fans, steel rolls, and conveyor screws. By coating these components with tungsten carbide, manufacturers can add years of durability to their machines. Tungsten carbide coatings can be applied with several coating processes including HVOF, Plasma, and others. The HVOF coating process offers the lowest porosity and highest bond strength of the coating processes available.
Our coatings also greatly benefit components and equipment across many industrial processes. Process rolls that need good grip in the paper industry or impellers used in mixing equipment can greatly benefit from tungsten carbide-based coatings. A tungsten carbide coating provides the protection these parts require. Industrial Plating company has a variety of specialized HVOF thermal spray coating solutions to protect your important machine parts that meet your unique project needs.Coating Technical Data
The below data table highlights some typical tungsten carbide coating formulations. Tungsten carbide coatings exhibit very good abrasion resistant properties. However, they do not provide good corrosion resistance. If you have an application that requires corrosion resistance as well as abrasion resistance, chromium carbide coatings
offer a better solution.
Tungsten carbide coating applications that require smooth surface finishes must be ground with diamond abrasives. Industrial Plating has cylindrical grinding
and surface finishing
capabilities and expertise to meet your requirements.
